Prince Alfred Park Pool

Prince Alfred Park Pool

Open all year round

In its first 2 years of operation, the City of Sydney's newest swimming pool will be open all year round for a trial period.

Prince Alfred Park Pool is the City's first accessible heated outdoor pool with a ramp into the water.

A part of the award-winning Prince Alfred Park transformation, the redesigned pool was opened on 13 May 2013.

Its new facilities include:

  • splash deck with water toys for toddlers
  • new change rooms, café and kiosk
  • new fencing, seating and landscaped areas
  • latest filtration systems and water saving fixtures
  • energy efficient lighting and heating
  • storm water harvesting.

The pool is surrounded by bleachers, umbrellas, improved paths, furniture and lights.

The pool complex features a green roof of native grasses to regulate temperature and the building also features animated chimneys that are functional public art pieces.

Aquatic Club

The City of Sydney Aquatic Club (COSAC) is a great way for kids of all ages to enjoy competitive swimming.

Swimmers from the City's 5 swim schools meet to race and develop the skills needed to take the next steps into competitive swimming.

Race night is each Friday from 6pm to 8pm from 4 October 2013 until 25 April 2014.

The pool is closed to the public during these times. Find out more about COSAC and how to enrol.

Spring in the Park

Spring in the Park marked the arrival of the new season, a free, family-friendly party.

The pool hosted learn to swim classes, aqua aerobics and synchronised swimming while in the park the pop-up Try2Wheels hub offered free bike tune ups and expert advice.

Spring in the Park also included live music, roving entertainers and free refreshments.
